WWDC 2020 update

During WWDC 2020, Apple made many announcements. Among the most important, we note the arrival of new Apple processors based on the ARM architecture, which will gradually equip the new Macs. But also new versions of operating systems: MacOS Big Sur, WatchOS 7, iOS 14. As well as an update to Siri, the new CarKey functionality, and improvements in terms of privacy.

StopCovid, a rather negative assessment

The government made a progress update on the launch of StopCovid and took the opportunity to detail the official figures of the application. 1.9 million downloads and 14 notified users in total, in 3 weeks. This is a low figure, to which is added the observation that nearly one in four users uninstalls the application.

Sony releases bug bounty for PS4

After Nintendo and Microsoft, it’s Sony’s turn to launch a bug bounty program for its Playstation 4 game console. If the Japanese manufacturer is the last in the race, it hits hard by offering bonuses of up to 50,000 dollars, more than double its competitors. The program will be managed by HackerOne, a platform that hosts bug bounty programs for many companies around the world.

The key figure: 1re place in the Top 500 for the Fugaku supercomputer

The world’s fastest computer is now Japanese. Fugaku is almost three times faster than the American supercomputer Summit, which occupied the first world place in the Top 500 ranking for four years. The power of Fugaku is 415.53 petaflops, compared to 148.6 petaflops for Summit. Note that Fugaku is also at the top of the Graph 500, HPCG and HPL-AI rankings in addition to the Top 500 ranking. This is the first time that a supercomputer has simultaneously taken first place in these four rankings.
